Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf #Recipe from ManApprovedDiet

I am so excited to welcome Man Approved Diet as my first blog to have a sponsored post. Are you interested in seeing your recipe, craft, or anything about you on Nanny To Mommy? Please visit my Sponsorship tab today. :)


The Man behind the Man Approved Diet is my husband. He tastes every recipe on my blog, and a lot of them that don’t make it to the blog. Luckily he’s usually pretty easy to cook for. His only requirement is that I use cheese, bacon, ranch, or jalapenos in as many recipes as possible. Well, and that I always have some sort of back up meal in the freezer…
One of his favorite recipes is Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf. Normally he doesn’t like meatloaf, but just add some bacon and cheese to it and it becomes one of his most requested recipes.

3 minced cloves garlic
1/2 cup chopped onions
6 slices center cut bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 tablespoons dry rub
3 diced plum tomatoes
1 pound ground turkey
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the diced tomatoes, garlic, breadcrumbs, ground turkey and barbecue dry rub in a large bowl.
In a saute pan, cook the bacon and onions until the bacon is crispy. Drain well on paper towels.
Line a bread pan with foil. Put half of the meat mixture in the bottom of the pan, creating a depression running down the center of the loaf. Fill the depression with the bacon mixture and half of the cheese. Cover with the remaining meat mixture, ensuring that the bacon and cheese are sealed in.
Bake covered for 30 minutes. Top with the remaining barbecue sauce and cheese, bake for another five minutes or until the cheese is melted.
To make it in the microwave instead of the oven, form the meatloaf in a microwave safe container. Cover it and microwave it for 18 - 20 minutes. Top with the barbecue sauce and cheese, cover and microwave for another 3 - 5 minutes.
